Selecting a Voice Collaboration Solution

Get the voice solution that's the best fit for your organization. To help, we've collected a list of essential considerations so you can identify which options are right for you.



Collaborate anywhere. Get voice solutions that work wherever you are and grow with you as your environment evolves.


Important considerations for your workspace:

  • Make sure all of your workspaces have a solution that's tailored to the environment, whether it's a conference room, huddle room, or office.
  • Pick devices that protect your investment by adapting to changing technologies and scaling effortlessly.
  • Look for solutions that can be easily managed remotely or on-site.


Collaborate naturally. The most powerful collaboration occurs when teams can hear and understand each other clearly without ever noticing the technology.


Important considerations for your collaboration experience:

  • Eliminate miscommunication with high-definition audio that's clear and distinct.
  • Provide teams with simple, intuitive interfaces so they can focus on collaboration, not technology.
  • Give teams the power to collaborate with immersive audio in larger rooms such as boardrooms.


Collaborate with impact. Integrate voice collaboration into daily processes to help workers develop digital work habits that drive greater productivity.


Important considerations for your workflow:

  • Integrate desktop devices into workflows such as calendaring and directories.
  • Buy on-premises if your organization requires greater control and security. For lower up-front costs and scalability, implement a cloud solution.
  • A single vendor can provide you with a more tightly integrated solution, but best-of-breed solutions are easier to change as needs evolve.
